Obama has decided to publicly observe the National Day of Prayer by privately praying at home. Or as his spokesperson put it, he’s just going back to the practice of the president before the Bush administration, better known as Clinton. But not too far back though, to like Bush Sr., Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, etc. Because all those guys publicly supported the National Day of Prayer by publicly attending the event. I know, crazy. But in Obama’s defense, he might be on to something here. Maybe he could publicly observe his presidency by staying at home for that as well.
